IN THIS EPISODE:  Find out SAP is using eLearning to drive adoption of their latest software products, and why social networks will need better legal chops to stand up to DMCA take down requests from sleazy operations like Ashley Madison

NEWS & TRENDS

Eric and Paul discuss Ashley Madison’s attempt to use the DMCA to get online publishers not to share their customer list, and the inherent tension social networks face as news providers, particularly if they lack the legal chops to stand up to take down requests under the Fair Use Doctrine.

SPECIAL GUESTS: NIR ROSTOKER AND KATRIN ELK OF SAP

With cloud, mobility and big data reshaping the way information technology is delivered and consumed, agile business is critical to driving fast implementation of new software and services.

In this podcast, Paul and Eric talk to Nir Rostoker, VP of UX and Mobile, Solution and Packaging at SAP, and openSAP e-learning architect Katrin Elk and about how they used an online course and a crowdsourcing initiative to drive and scale adoption of SAP Fiori, a new user experience-building tool for SAP software. Enthusiasts built more than 1,500 Fiori apps, driving word-of-mouth awareness of both the product and the openSAP e-learning platform.

SAP has been expediting sales cycles by connecting buyers with customers from similar verticals in the SAP Community Network, which Paul and Eric covered in their B2B marketing book, so it’s fitting to see SAP take the lead on the use of e-learning to drive technology adoption as well.
